Performing Perfectly provide unique opportunities to learn and develop essential skills for successful communication, presentation and peak performance. Our programmes are interactive, offering real time feedback to encourage individuals to do things differently.
We team up with psychologists, fellow theatre and television actors, executive coaches and business leaders to nurture performance and provide unique opportunities to learn and develop essential skills for successful communication, presentation and peak performance.
We focus on perfecting communication skills, whether that is with an audience, colleagues, customers or clients. Using our background in theatre and the performing arts industry, we develop individuals and organisations to achieve success with consistent and continuously high levels of performance.

“Chris and Lucy Key from Performing Perfectly are going to take you for a session this morning” we were told. I Google Chris Key and then I panic! West End Director? I’m not sure what I could get out of this session. I was part of a keynote speaking course and Chris and Lucy were coming in to talk to us and give a masterclass about performance. Now I’m always naturally wary and sceptical of learning things at my ripe old age, close to a half century, as I think I know about most things, it’s just the way I am (please don’t judge me, it comes with age). I suppose I could be taken out of my comfort zone but, all the same, what would I learn?
Clearly Chris and Lucy have great reputations in the theatre world, a world, if I’m honest, I’m not too familiar with. In the following couple of hours, I was blown away by the beautiful way Chris and Lucy stripped back everything on how to present and perform. I actually felt stupid after the session because it was so easy to understand what they were telling me. Things like the importance of standing in a particular way, posture, sitting in a certain way and how to give an impression of authority. Simple things we take for granted but things which make us better at what we do. Why hadn’t I thought of this stuff before?!
But they both impacted on me in an enormous way. Light and shade, pauses, how and when to project my voice, shortening speech, use of tone and emphasising words in a particular way. Everything made sense and Chris and Lucy have such a likeable and fun way of teaching it. I’d been broadcasting for several years before I met Chris and Lucy but learned so much from them. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. The biggest thing for me was the lovely simplicity in the way they both get their points across and how easy it was to understand. Chris and Lucy are geniuses at what they do. Thanks to them both for opening my eyes.”
